    The bird population in the south east is showing the worst decline in England, according to an RSPB study

    According to the study farmland birds in the south east had fallen by over a quarter, and woodland birds have fallen by 19%  - overall bird numbers in the south east have fallen by 12%.

    "It's worrying that we've lost more than a quarter of our farmland birds and a fifth of our woodland birds in this region, with species like the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, the Willow Tit and the Corn Bunting having vanished from some counties," said Steve Gilbert, from the RSPB.
